Yunnan Mushrooms Arrive In Hong Kong

Sprouting from the rich soils of Yunnan during the rainy season at this time of year is a cornucopia of wild mushrooms found only in the uniquely biodiverse climes of this southwestern Chinese province. Fungi lovers can get a taste of this year's harvest at The Legacy House and Chilli Fagara, where regular deliveries of some of Yunnan's 1,000 mushroom varieties ensure the optimal freshness of this unique delicacy.

Meanwhile at Chilli Fagara, chef Chan Kai-ying infuses her Sichuanese flair into dishes like a spicy broth of lion's mane, Chanterelle and porcini mushrooms, plump fried cuttlefish stuffed with morels, and bamboo pith and chicken slices with tea tree mushrooms.
